So it's the Apostle Paul and Early Fathers you were calling BS on.

Not me for what I said about JWs. :wink:

More about Jehovah's Witnesses.

An atheist ex-JW claims they are "creepy" on purpose as a form of party discipline.

At least that's how I understand what he's saying.

Oh no! Not the Southern Baptists! :o

Southern Baptist President Endorses ‘Pronoun Hospitality’ When Addressing Transgender People
Faithwire

Note: This is not like being the president of the Mormons, who is like a pope.

This is more like president of a trade association of Baptist preachers, each of whom may interpret as he pleases.
Though not without influence of course.

"Millennials" are an arbitrary category cooked up by the marketing department. :p

Buggers to split yet another church.

Texas megachurch votes to leave UMC over homosexuality debate
Christian Post
A United Methodist Church congregation in Texas with approximately 2,800 members has voted to leave the mainline denomination because of its debate over homosexuality.

Grace Fellowship UMC of Katy voted Dec. 15 to leave the UMC due to the divisive debate on whether to amend the Book of Discipline to remove language calling homosexuality “incompatible with Christian teaching.”

Jim Leggett, the founding pastor of Grace Fellowship, told The Christian Post in an interview Monday that his congregation wanted “to remove ourselves from the dysfunctional fighting going on in the United Methodist Church so that we can fully devote our energies to fulfilling the mission and vision that God has given to us.”

...
From what I can see of the United Methodist in the Midwest, I thought they were already all the way gay-friendly. Rainbow flags flying, the lot.

Harvard Law Professor: Atheists “Can’t Be Trusted” to Hold Public Office

I’m not a Harvard law student, much less a Harvard law professor, but Adrian Vermeule is. Which is why it’s all the more disturbing that he seems to believe atheists are incapable of holding public office.

Responding to a Washington Post article about how white evangelicals falsely fear that atheists would strip away their rights given the chance, one person chimed in by saying several states have laws on the books saying atheists can’t hold public office or serve on juries. That’s absolutely true even if all those laws are unenforceable.

The point is that when Christians are in power, they actually have limited atheists’ rights. There’s no analog the other way around.

In response to that point, Vermeule chimed in by saying those states were right to ban atheists from serving in office because atheists “can’t be trusted to keep an oath.”

Another Jehovah's Witness expose.

The bizarre psychological effect of not allowing blood transfusions, beyond the official doctrine.
